Adele burst onto the music scene in 2009 with her debut album, 19, and she has never looked back. The 2009 Grammy Awards named her Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. Although she’s known for writing compelling break-up ballads, Adele knows her way around a love song as well. Let’s take a look at some of the best Adele love songs for weddings.

Adele sings that love is the cure for what ails us in life with these sweet lyrics:

But when the pain cuts you deep

When the night keeps you from sleeping

Just look and you will see

That I will be your remedy

When the world seems so cruel

And your heart makes you feel like a fool

I promise you will see

That I will be, I will be your remedy.

Her strong vocals require but piano accompaniment to sell this song. This is a lovely song for you to consider for your first dance song.

Another Brit, Joe Miles, covers Remedy accompanied by piano and guitar:

Motherhood inspired Adele to write this love song called, “Sweetest Devotion.” The intensity of the lyrics work beautifully for your first dance song:

The sweetest devotion

Hitting me like an explosion

All of my life, I’ve been frozen

The sweetest devotion I’ve known.

One and Only

The best Adele love songs collection has to include “One and Only,” a popular theme in songwriting over the years. Adele tackled the subject when she was 21, an age when the unrelenting urgency to embrace love is overwhelming. Here’s how she says it:

I dare you to let me be your, your one and only

I promise I’m worthy

To hold in your arms

So come on and give me the chance

To prove I am the one who can walk that mile

Until the end starts.

As mentioned above, the idea of being the ‘one and only’ love has inspired songwriters down through the ages. Here’s Sting singing “My One and Only Love” written by Guy Wood and Robert Mellin, published in 1953.

Robert Mellin’s lyrics exude romance:

The very thought of you makes my heart sing

Like an April breeze on the wings of spring

And you appear in all your splendor

My one and only love.

The shadows fall and spread their mystic charms

In the hush of night while you’re in my arms

I feel your lips, so warm and tender

My one and only love.

Even before Wood and Mellin, the Gershwin brothers wrote an entire musical called “My One and Only” way, way back in 1927. Here’s the title song performed by Tony Bennett and Diana Krall:

The lyrics feature Ira Gershwin at his rhyming best:

My one and only,

What am I gonna do if you turn me down

When I`m so crazy over you?

I’d be so lonely

Where am I gonna go if you turn me down,

Why blacken all my skies of blue?

I tell you, I’m not asking any miracle

It can be done, it can be done.

I know a clergyman who will grow lyrical

And make us one, and make us one.

So, my one and only,

There isn’t a reason why you should turn me down,

When I’m so crazy over you.

Light. Happy. Impeccably crafted. That’s a Gershwin song! But we’re talking about the best Adele love songs, so let’s hear one more.

Love Song

This song was first written and performed by an alternative band called The Cure in 1989. Adele covered it in her Adele 21 album. Check out these great lyrics:

Whenever I’m alone with you

You make me feel like I am home again

Whenever I’m alone with you

You make me feel like I am whole again

Whenever I’m alone with you

You make me feel like I am young again

Whenever I’m alone with you

You make me feel like I am fun again.
